OK, now what you need to do is, disconnect the blue and black wire from terminals 1 and 2. tape or set them aside so they dont't get damaged. With the dryer power off check across the two terminals for an "open" circuit with a multi meter. Then start the dryer, and recheck across the no.1 and 2 terminals again, for a "closed" circuit. This will tell you if the centrifugal switch is completing the neutral circuit to the gas valve. If there is no circuit, presumably you'd have a faulty repalcement motor. You need to be careful, there will be 120 volts at other contacts of the motor.
Thanks for allowing to assist you,
